DS:Do you think that your father’s involvement, your father’s political involvement was for a just cause?
KN:Oh yes. Although he was a president I want to make this point, even though he was a president of the South African Indian Congress, he fought for everybody, he fought for the Africans, the Indians, the Coloureds and the Whites also. He fought for the freedom of this country not only for the Indians, even though he was the president of the Indian Congress. So it’s just a pity that he wasn’t allowed to see the fruits of his struggle.
DS:Can we pause?
DS:We are back. I just want to take you a little bit back, I am going to ask you about the NIC after the ANC was banned, their activities. Can you still remember how they functioned, like did it change its mandate the NIC?
KN:I don’t think it changed its mandate, but after the ANC was banned, I think it was in the 1960’s, the NIC continued and it probably acted as a front, and an organization, which coordinated the struggle in conjunction with the ANC. And a lot of instructions were sent to the ANC via the NIC via the ANC. And so I think, you can say this like a front for the organisation, which was banned. And there were a lot of meetings held between various groups at our house and in my father’s surgery.
